For over 40 years, The Center has worked to mobilize Triangle area students to volunteer and make a difference. Last year our students were recognized for over 50,000 hours of service to the Triangle community.

Annually, we host the Tomorrow's Community Leaders Award Ceremony for all student achievement programs each fall.
 Monique Martin
Carolina Donor Services

All volunteers do valuable work, but Monique Martin is a life-saver. She volunteers as a Friends for Life Ambassador with Carolina Donor Services, a federally designated organ procurement organization. This group serves over 100 hospitals and four transplant centers that perform heart, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas, and intestine transplants. Monique spends hours spreading the word about the vital importance of donations. She addresses DMV employees and hospital staffs, and speaks at health fairs, donor drives, civic clubs, and campus and church events. She shares her story of being a living kidney donor, explaining that her decision to donate saved the life of her niece. Her volunteer supervisor, Taylor Anderton, says that Monique is “tireless in her efforts to raise awareness and inspire others,” and notes that she has tremendous skill at engaging with others and helping them to talk about potentially difficult subjects. Anderton explains, “Monique’s laugh and never-give-up attitude make people feel comfortable.”

Thank you, Monique,
for your truly life-changing work.
